Re: LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

No HDMI Win 7 and LM20 are on separate HDs. On Win 7, the refresh rate dropdown options are either 50 or 60 but 60 is listed as a "non-stable" option. Yet either refresh rate seems to work when tested. LM20 is much more specific for the rolling 1920x1080 at 59.93 but that seems darn close to the 60 ...

Re: LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

With xandr can I actually add refresh rates that aren't listed for the 1920x1080 or just select from the options provided and make it default?
Under Win7 it shows it running at 59 and warns that 60 may cause problems so that might explain why LM20 spec'd at 59.97 is rolling?

Re: LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

can't lower the refresh rate. only option at 1920x1080 is 59.93 16x9
at 1280x1024 only option is 75.02 and that works just fine (though not full screen) 5:4
odd thing as the pc shuts down, display set at 1280x1024, the LM logo is rolling.
boots back into last display setting 1280x1024 ok though.

Re: LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

Thanks for the lift anyways.
I changed the settings to 5:4 and while the image is smaller than the recommended 16:9, the rolling stopped.
Odd that Windows 7 on the same hardware can handle 16:9 with the same TV but not the venerable LM20.

Re: LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

think I got screen shots attached of recommended settings etc. for both the JVC TV and Acer monitor Settings seem OK but JVC rolls with LM20. OK with Win7 and XP.

LM 20 rolling image on 32" tv

Dell Vostro 410 core 2 duo
Been using Win 7 connected to 32" tv as monitor. Works fine.
Installed LM20 on separate HD. Works fine on 22" monitor but when connected to 32" TV as monitor, the image just rolls and rolls and rolls.

VLC audio sync issue

I used DVD shrink on Win 7 to shrink a commercial dvd and Nero to burn. Now I am trying to use VLC to convert/save the shrunk DVD to an MP4 file. The audio is out of sync. I tried adjusting +/- settings but it doesn't hit the mark. Any suggestions appreciated, even if it requires a different softwar...

Re: Mint 18 alongside Win 7 (no option)

That worked @Larry. Thank you.
This is an old 32 bit machine so I guess it will meet a hammer after 19.3

Mint 18 alongside Win 7 (no option) SOLVED

Trying to install Mint 18 alongside Win 7 on same drive. That option "alongside" isn't present in the installation steps.
Never did anything other than follow the prompts for standard install of Mint alone and don't know where to go from here.
See attached screenshots.
Thanks.

Re: installing cinema hd LM18 Cinnamon

Shashlik unpacks and "installs" but is nowhere to be found or launch...

Re: Mint 18 no microphone on HP G60

Well, it did show another option "built-in audio" but neither that nor the "internal audio built in microphone" work. I tried your microphone link but it says waiting for microphone and then goes to a blank bar where nothing registers to my vot that it matters but I did hook up a Logiteoice. The way...
